The drunken man asked the clerk in an Anchorage, Alaska, gas
station to call him a cab, then in a fit of agitation at being asked
to wait for it outside, pulled a gun and attempted to rob the place.
Alerted by the clerk, two mechanics, one of them armed with a gun he
keeps in his tool box, followed the man outside where the three
became mired in a standoff. Upon arriving on the scene, the cab
driver discovered what was happening, drew his own gun and shoved it
into the robber's neck. The armed mechanic and cabbie then forced
the supect to the ground where he was held for police.
